>Topics & Keywords

The SHIM-ICACS 2018 join conference will construct the Scientific program around topics in order to cover the largest field possible. These topics will be used for the abstract submission.

In order to organize the Scientific program, the SHIM & ICACS topics have been merged in 5 topics:

  • T01. Basic processes (atomic collisions, scattering, stopping)

  • T02. Materials (Bulk): Damage, Tracks

  • T03. Surfaces, 2D materials and Emission Phenomena

  • T04. Nanotechnology and Applications, including Capillaries

  • T05. Radiobiology, Ion beam Therapy, Organics, Polymers


  • charge-exchange processes;
  • collective as well as single-particle excitation and ionization;
  • energy loss, scattering and channeling of primary and secondary particles;
  • electron, atom, ion and photon emission processes;
  • slow highly-charged-ion interactions at surfaces;
  • radiation damage and materials modification, including nuclear-energy materials;
  • high-energy-density physics with intense ion beams and in relation to plasma physics;
  • collision induced physical, chemical and biological reactions.


  • Interactions of Swift Heavy Ions with Gases, Liquids, Solids, and Plasmas
    • electronic excitation, ionization, and charge transfer processes;
    • spectroscopy of electrons, photons, and recoil ions;
    • stopping powers and local energy deposition;
    • conversion of electronic excitation energy into atomic motion;
    • dynamics and relaxation of electronic excitations and atomic displacements.
  • Material Modifications
    • mechanisms of track formation;
    • ultrafast timescale damage processes;
    • creation of point defects; defect clusters, and nanoparticles;
    • phase transitions and recrystallization;
    • sputtering and mixing;
    • materials response in extreme environments;
    • high-cycle thermo-mechanical stresses and material fatigue.
  • Chemical and Biological Radiation Effects
    • beam-induced processes in organic and inorganic materials;
    • radiolytic yields;
    • radiobiology and tumor therapy with ion beams.
  • Applications:
    • structuring of materials;
    • ion-track based nanostructures;
    • heavy-ion micro- and nanotechnology;
    • effects of swift heavy ions on electronic devices;
    • geological, astrophysical and other applications based on high-energy accelerators.
